Interactive map: what will the weather be in your city in 60 years?

https://fitzlab.shinyapps.io/cityapp/

"The central contradiction of climate change is that it is at once the most epic problem that our species has ever faced yet it is largely invisible to the average human. From the comfort of your home, you may not realize how climate change is already affecting mental health, or ripping apart ecosystems, or how cities like Los Angeles are taking drastic measures to prepare for water shortages."

"The challenge for scientists, then, is raising the alarm on something thatís hard to conceptualize. But a new interactive map is perhaps one of the best visualizations yet of how climate change will transform America. Click on your city, and the map will pinpoint a modern analog city that matches what your climate may be in 2080. New York city will feel more like todayís Jonesboro, Arkansas; the Bay Area more like LA; and LA more like the very tip of Baja California. If this doesnít put the dire threat of climate change into perspective for you, Iím not sure what will."
